Whether you are a new or experienced landscape technician, you can benefit from Landscape Industry Certified Technician training programs. Our member organizations offer basic education in landscape maintenance as well as advanced certification preparatory classes, irrigation instruction and more.

The landscape maintenance sessions consist of 10 to 13 individual classes dealing with various specific aspects of maintenance and irrigation repair. These sessions are offered annually on Oahu, Big Island, Kauai and Maui.

A separate Irrigation School is offered at least once a year on the Big Island. The school will be available in August as a Webinar. Notices will be sent out soon. This is a two-day session, which covers irrigation topics in much greater detail and is intended for the more experienced landscape irrigation professional.

Registration Forms for the 2020 Hawaii LICT Training Courses will be available when possible when CODIT-19 restrictions allow.
